Received this earlier in the week, and gave it a listen today.  Sound is not great, either a needle drop or deteriorating tape.  But perfectly listenable under the circumstances.  On the other hand, really excellent liner notes.  Interestingly, a shout out from Maxine Gordon (who produced the reissue) to Charles Tolliver for "his help making the reissue a reality".  No sure what that indicates, since I thought the artists (in this case the Scott estate) owned the tapes and rights.  Could that bode well for other Strata East reissues?  

Sounds like a pass.

Yes, but if the sound is poor, I will pass on it or look for the lp.

Note: just looked at Discogs and the original lp is $75 and up so I guess that may be a pass.

Brad, the entire album is available to stream on the Bandcamp site - link from the original poster https://arc-records.bandcamp.com/album/one-for-me, so you can sample it.

I thought it sounded good!

That’s a good point. I need to do that, thanks.

No complaints about sound by me. More importantly, the music is great.

Strangely, I heard distortion in the sax on one CD player, but on another (higher priced) all was okay, and the sound was very good. The music is evern better, some of the best Scott I ever heard.

That sax distortion is what I hear.  I will try a different player but do not have any high end equipment.

Surely some of these songs have lyrics tucked away somewhere?

My thoughts as well. This is an engaging listen and a cohesive statement.

Like a scaled-down gatefold LP with a cardboard inner sleeve. The liner notes take up both sides of the inside + both sides of that inner sleeve.

What is the CD packaging like?  

It's a mini-lp gate-fold album with liner-notes on the inside of the sleeve that continue on the inside wallet that contains the actual cd. As far as non-Japanese 'mini-lp's' go, it's quite nice. I like the new cover as well. Great picture by Francis Wolff.

Thanks!  I was looking for an excuse to be cheap and go with the lossless download, but I sprung for the CD.
